Let the developer decide.
You are writing an api, right?

Choose a default. Allow for the opposite value.

Complete the easiest path.
By then, reality should be more clear. If not, implement the other path, and repeat the thought process.

Finally, how is it handled in other OSes? Older systems? Maybe they were right?

Good luck!
